9 Ways to Foster Resilient Learners and Assess the Process, Not the Outcome

By Elizabeth Jorgensen

Traditional outcome-based grades make school a place of right or wrong answers, a rigid system that stalls enjoyment and learning. In contrast, innovative teachers of all subjects and grade levels use process-based assessment to build positive classroom cultures and help students focus on the learning, not the grades.
Award-winning writer and teacher Elizabeth Jorgensen shows how to create process-based assessments that help students develop habits of higher-order thinking. It is about embracing, trying, failing, and trying again, and turning “What did you get on the test?” into “How did you get that on the test?” 
In Hacking Student Learning Habits, you’ll learn how to:
  • build upward trends in non-linear learning
  • introduce small, measurable, progress-driven goals
  • de-emphasize grades as the outcome
  • create fun in the learning
  • inspire students to develop high-yield habits for life

Can we help students focus more on the 1000s of choices they are making every day instead of their g.p.a? Yes we can. Can we help students understand that mistakes and failure and necessary for learning? Yes we can."
